Most managers don't know how to be empathetic and clear about workload and ability.
Most team members don't know how to support the employee affected by cancer and this causes them stress.
Most employees affected by cancer, loss, or a health crisis are hesitant to ask for help and are worried about their ability to continue to work effectively.
Most organizations miss the opportunity to provide tools for their managers that show them how to show up in a meaningful way and build team camaraderie and productivity!

PACKAGE #1 EMPLOYEE-MANAGER SESSIONS
This four-part series helps set up the manager and employee with cancer for a successful and communicative relationship while the employee is undergoing treatment.
Meet with the Employee. In this 45-minute session, your employee will meet with Kim to assess and understand how their treatment may affect their work. The employee will come away with a clear idea of what they will and won’t be able to manage while receiving treatment, an understanding of what duties and projects they will need support on, and how their boss and their team can support them. (This session follows all legal guidelines put forth by HIPPA and the ADA.)
Meet the Manager. In this 45-minute session, the manager will meet with Kim and assess the ramifications of the employee’s cancer on the productivity and well-being of the team. The manager will come away with a clear idea of the important questions they can and cannot ask, and comfortable knowing how to have typically uncomfortable conversations in a productive and helpful manner.
Meet with the Manager and the Employee. During this joint hour session, your manager, your employee affected by cancer and Kim will develop a work and communication plan. They will also set up guidelines for constructive and crucial meetings moving forward.
PACKAGE #2 EMPLOYEE-MANAGER-TEAM SESSIONS
This offer includes everything above plus an additional session with the team. Team members are eager to support and often don’t have know-how. Kim will walk the team through her proprietary five-step process that leads to the team clearly understanding how they can be supportive to the employee with cancer. In addition, Kim will appropriately incorporate the wishes of the employee.
Are you looking for something more than what is offered above? Maybe you have several managers you’d like to be trained or you have a large division with several employees affected by cancer or another health crisis. We do customized sessions to fit your needs.
"The beauty of Kim’s program is that it is a whole-life program, relevant to our personal and professional lives, and easily adaptable to difficulties of all types – a diagnosis, a death, loss of a pet, loss of a job – the possibilities are endless!"
Dianna R. | HR Executive for 25 years
